HAVE YOU BEEN DIAGNOSED with gum disease? Concerned? Don’t be. We can help. With thoughtful treatment and careful maintenance we can correct the problem and protect your healthy smile.

Depending on your individual condition and needs, we may recommend a treatment that’s known by several different names. It’s sometimes called “root planing and scaling”, or a “periodontal cleaning”, or “deep cleaning.”

The Problem:

  • A bacterial infection has become too “set-in” to be remedied by a routine cleaning.
  • Plaque has solidified into calculus deposits that are sitting under the surface of your gums and continue to irritate the gums and spread infection.

The Solution:

  • Removing the calculus from below the gum line, using special tools.
  • Smoothing the root surfaces to be sure plaque can’t continue to get traction.
  • Once the plaque and calculus are removed, your gums can finally heal.

Gum Disease Treatment May Require Some Follow-Up Maintenance And Monitoring

Remember that after we’ve completed treatment, there may be additional maintenance necessary. More frequent cleanings will help protect your recovering gums and allow us to monitor your progress.

Set Up A Plan To Get Your Oral Health Back On Track

Each case of gum disease is different. If the infection is extensive, you may need additional help. But whatever the case, we can discuss your options and help you with a plan to regain control of your oral health.

We Have Experience Treating Gum Disease

We are fully qualified and and possess a vast amount of experience in treating periodontal. Both of our hygienists have 40 years of experience and are fully licensed and board certified. Continuing education is very important to us and we maintain at least 20 hours per year.

In general we treat the majority of our patients suffering from periodontitis in-house. We treat half of the mouth on the first visit, then the second half on another. After a one month healing period we do an exam to make sure that the healing process is going well and also to ensure that at-home care is as good as it can be.

Don’t put it off any longer! Talk to us today about your options.

Thanks for being our valued patient!
